Surrey have re-signed Victorian paceman Dirk Nannes for this summer’s Twenty20 competition.
Nannes, a T20 specialist, is the leading wicket-taker worldwide in Twenty20 cricket.
The 35-year-old played for the Brown Caps in last year’s Twenty20 campaign and has agreed to return as the club’s second overseas star alongside Indian spinner Murali Kartik.
Surrey team director Chris Adams said: “As we saw last season in the shortest form of the game, Dirk is still one of the most consistently dangerous and economical bowlers on the world scene.
“He did a fantastic job for us and I can speak for the whole club when I say we are delighted to welcome him back for another spell.”
